SparkFun Forums 

Where electronics enthusiasts find answers.

I'm planning on ordering some things for a few new projects, but wondering if there are any stores (in person, not online) that people would recommend that have a selection of these types of items to check out in person. I'm looking mainly at: arduino, gps, fingerprint, biometric sensors, conductive thread and fabric -- I would like to get a sense for the feel and shape of some things as I'm low-fidelity prototyping the industrial design, before I order stuff to make a working proto. Any tips? I'm in the Bay Area, or Seattle would work too.
Thank you!

There are lots of retail stores selling Sparkfun products. You may want to email customer service as the employees don't frequent the forums very much. The only store front I know about is at Sparkfun's HQ in Colorado.
